    Hi everyone

    Here is an update on the challenge discus from Darren.

    5 out of the 6 still remain, 1 died mysteriously a while back. Good one day, dead the next and i couldn't see why. none of the usual signs of disease or anything, and i didn't need to treat any other discus, everyone else was looking good....

    The 1st photo shows 4 of them at the front, along with some other tank buddies. They are in a 120 gallon.
    2nd photo is the largest discus, he was slightly larger than 13cm standard length when i measured him a couple of weeks ago. I guess that is about 5" or slightly more. The rest of the challenge discus are slightly smaller by a centimeter or thereabouts.
